Developing A Pranayama Practice with Sudhir Tiwari

Have you struggled with racing mind, shallow breath, and inability to focus? 

These days, many of us have difficulty maintaining equanimity. Our lives move fast, and sometimes you might feel that your mind circles and turns for no reason. If you've ever wondered how to calm yourself, yogic breathing practices may be the answer you need. 

The ancient practices of pranayama, which are breathing exercises developed in yoga, help you to find a calmer mind and emotional state. They bring you to a more grounded state.

And the best thing?

The effects are long lasting. Practicing pranayama in the morning will help you to feel calmer all day and even to sleep better.  

We are  honored to welcome Sri Sudhir Tiwari back to Balance Yoga to teach pranayama.  Sudhir grew up in a yogic environment in Lonavla, India. His father Sri O.P. Tiwari is one of India's foremost authorities in yoga (also Jessica Blanchard's pranayama and yoga teacher for more than 15 years).

Sudhir is dedicated to sharing his knowledge and expertise to help us to build a foundation of traditional Pranayama in Kaivalyadhama Lineage within our community. 

If you have attended his workshops in the past, this is your chance to deepen and develop your practice. If you're completely new, this is a wonderful opportunity to learn Pranayama from a master. 

Sudhir Tiwari Teaching at Balance Yoga

This is a unique opportunity to study with one of the most authentic voices in the world of modern yoga. Sudhir shares his understanding of the science and philosophy of pranayama and ayurveda in a clear and accessible way.

He will teach a half-day of pranayama, asana, philosophy and meditation, according to the tradition of his father Sri O.P. Tiwariji  and the Kaivalyadham Yoga Institute of Lonavala, India. During these unique morning sessions, we'll  immerse ourselves into yogic practices of asana, pranayama, philosophy and meditation techniques using traditional methods and guidelines.

The workshops are a practical journey where you experience the benefits of traditional breathing techniques on our health and mind. We will examine the traditional science of pranayama, its purpose, some primary techniques and their benefits, according to both classical yoga philosophy as well as modern science. The workshops will include personal pulse diagnosis to determine your individual practice recommendations.
